I find this one hard to belief but there is a police report and TMZ dutifully reported that Bucky Convington allegedly stole $1,500 from a promoter earlier this month. (No, it was no Wild Bill’s, where he performed July 1.)
Bucky — who placed 8th on “Idol” back in 2006 — was set to perform at the Iron Horse Saloon in Ormond Beach, Florida on June 30 as part of a July 4 NASCAR race week celebration … when the promoter suffered chest pains and was rushed to a nearby hospital. With the promoter out of the picture, Bucky allegedly saw an opportunity to raid the cash box — and instructed his brother and his brother’s wife to pull off a snatch and grab.
True. Not true? We’ll find out soon enough.
